Stunning, Eco-Friendly, and Long Lasting Cork Flooring

WP_20160219_012Good for the Earth

One of the primary reasons for cork flooring’s surge in popularity is that it is one of the greenest materials possible. Unlike traditional wooden floors, no trees are cut down to make cork, and indeed the process of harvesting cork only promotes healthy forests and good natural stewardship. Cork trees are left alone to mature for approximately 25 years, at which point they are stripped of roughly half their bark. This process is repeated about every nine years, allowing cork to be harvested from trees that are not only living but very healthy, making cork a naturally-renewable resource that also creates strong communities of long-term harvesters around its groves.

Good for Your Body

Humans love cork flooring. It’s warm, soft, and insulating, and feels completely natural. If you entertain often or spend a lot of time on your feet, your soles and arches will thank you for choosing such a springy surface material. It’s also a dream come true for anyone who suffers from allergies, as it doesn’t harbor dust and contains suberin, a waterproofing, waxy substance occurring naturally in cork that fends off mold, mildew, and insects. And finally, cork is a great insulator–it will keep your home warm in the winter, while also naturally muffling sounds, which is great if you have a high-traffic floor about a bedroom, or live in a condo with easily-disturbed downstairs neighbors.

Good for Your Home

Cork is also just beautiful! A new cork floor is a great way to increase the value of your home as well as its functionality. It does require frequent sealing and must be cleaned of any debris that might gauge the sealant immediately, but the advantages outweigh the maintenance. Our favorite fabricator of cork flooring is DuroDesign, and we’re happy to say that they offer 54 different colors and 6 patterns of cork flooring, ensuring homeowners the perfect match and look. DuroDesign also offers a 25-year structural 5-year renewable finish warranty for ultimate peace of mind.
